Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCDHA will not be offering face-to-face continuing education opportunities for Fall 2020. Members, for the time being, will need to complete continuing education required for licensure virtually. Although these are not sponsored by SCDHA, here are some upcoming CE opportunities that are available at minimal to no cost.
Great Lakes Health Literacy Conference 2020:
Health Literacy Implications During Times of Crisis
When: Virtual event October 9, 2020.
Time: 9:00AM -12:00 noon
Cost: Only $45.00 and can earn 3 CEUs.
This conference is co-sponsored by the Ohio Health Literacy Partners and Western Michigan University and features nationally recognized speakers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Horowitz Center for Health Literacy at the University of Maryland School of Public Health, and the Director Organizational Development and Health Literacy Institute at St. Vincent Charity Medical Center, Cleveland Ohio.
Health systems and professionals impact health literacy by making health information and services understandable and actionable. Information from health professionals, the media, and organizations often present information that is difficult to understand and act on. Therefore, equally important as an individual’s skills, are the skills of health professionals and organizations to provide health information in a manner that individuals can understand. Health literacy and oral health literacy are very closely linked and this topic is as pertinent more than ever right now due to the pandemic.
CE credit will be available to dentists and dental hygienists licensed in the State of OH (approved sponsor for continuing education by the Ohio State Dental Board). For more information/register: https://wmich.edu/events/60798
